How to choose the right barcode for your application?
Barcode supports different variants of symbologies in both One dimensional as well as in Two dimensional, which can be used in various applications. This article explains you about choosing the right barcode for your application.
One dimensional Barcode is a linear Barcode, The bars and spaces signified for each symbol in one dimensional Barcodes are grouped in such a way to represent a specific ASCII character. Which has commonly used on consumer goods, use a series of variable-width lines and spaces to encode data. Linear barcodes hold just a few dozen characters, and generally get physically longer as more data is added.
Two dimensional Barcode is a way to represent information by using two-dimensional approach. It is similar to one dimensional Barcode, but can represent more data per unit area. Two dimensional Barcode, like Data Matrix and QR Code, use patterns of squares, hexagons, dots, and other shapes to encode data. They can be much smaller while holding more data (hundreds of characters) than 1D codes. Data is encoded based on both the vertical and horizontal arrangement of the pattern, thus it is read in two dimensions.
